Mind Camp Sponsor: Pathable




Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sponsors, Upcoming

Pathable has given us access to their conference (and unconference) attendee planning tool, which we are going to be using to match people with others who share common interests, print badges, plan sessions, and more.

Pathable (http://www.pathable.com/) is an easy-to-use, private on-line community / directory for events. Attendees and sponsors create short profiles, then use the system to meet other attendees and to start conversations with them, pre-networking before the conference begins. For attendees, it’s a great way to make sure you make the kind of valuable connections you go to these types of events for, and for event hosts, it’s an essential part of making sure your attendees and sponsors get the value they need out of your event.

Seriously, this is some really good stuff. Check out a video introduction of how it all works, after the break.

“Because we’re all about creating community, we love to be involved in events like Seattle Mind Camp, which is all about connecting the community of geeks, techies and hackers in the Seattle area. In particular, we’ve just partnered with Seattle-based WetPaint to provide an integrated wiki as part of the Pathable service. I’m eager to see how “unconference”-style events like Seattle Mind Camp can make use of them to collaboratively generate the schedule, build notes, post links and the like for other members of the community. Seattle Mind Camp is our “test case” for unconference support, so please, send us feedback on how it works!”
